Flash AND substance... that's what you look for when buying a
well-done restomod, and this 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu truly
delivers. With a great shade of maroon, an upgraded A/C interior, a
five-speed, four-wheel disc brakes, a fuel-injected stroker motor,
and serious money invested in the suspension, you're looking at
everything you've wanted in a powerful classic... and it's ready to
run right now.
This was born a Tropical Turquoise, and that looked good on a
premium Malibu hardtop when new. But when it came time to upgrade
this to a meaner and sleeker restomod, they chose a more fitting
1966 color: Madeira Maroon. It has the boldness of red with deeper
tones, and so it sets the mood right for a car that has been
upgraded to be both more aggressive and more comfortable. The
high-gloss finish really radiates modern shine that will love to
show off the flying buttress design of this pillarless hardtop
Chevelle body. And speaking of the body, they paid attention to an
excellent panel fit and crisp lines to make this car look its best.
The brightwork in places like the chrome bumpers, grille, full
trim, and ribbed rocker panels all have a notable shine, too. And
those Foose wheels with 18/20 inch front/rear stagger go with the
overall shining theme of the car while also giving it an
The black interior looks great against the maroon exterior. The
full restoration gave this a fresh look for all the fundamentals,
including the upholstery, headliner, carpeting, and dash pad. And
you'll find thoughtful details everywhere from the working dome
light to how the center console was painted the exterior's maroon
to go with the door tops and lower dash. A restomod also means the
right modern upgrades. It includes JL Audio Mediamaster 50 AM/FM
audio system aux input, upgraded speakers, and Bluetooth (a $3k
investment alone,) and the classic vent sliders now connect to
cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And of course, this is also
built to be a better driver. The grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel
is mounted on a tilt column. It gives you a clear view to the
upgraded Thunder road gauges, and that large tach goes well with
the floor shifter.
The engine bay continues this coupe's strength and style packaging.
You have a tidy look with a smooth maroon painted firewall and
inner fenders, and lots of polished components. But what you'll
really love is the substance beyond the style. This is a BluePrint
383 stroker V8 that was installed less than 1,700 miles ago (the
odometer represents the motor's mileage.) It was built with the
right pieces like BluePrint aluminum heads and long tube headers.
And it's topped off with a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection
system for the best in power and consistency. It's a terrific
powerhouse that makes a sweet rumble out of the dual exhaust. But
any time you really want to bring the thunder, there's a switch on
the dash to engage the electronic cut-outs and bypass the mufflers.
You have full control over the strong motor and its high-octane
soundtrack thanks to the upgraded TKO600 five-speed manual
transmission (it was installed at the same time as the motor.) The
clean photos of the undercarriage show a big investment in a sports
suspension. You can spot the BMR tubular A-arm front suspension,
UMI four-link rear, adjustable coilovers all around, rack & pinion
power steering, and Wilwood drilled & slotted four-wheel discs
brakes. It proves this is a true restomod that truly provides an
upgraded all-around driving experience.
We have build receipts documenting about $18k invested just in the
last few years, and you even have a restoration photo book to show
the full project it takes to create a custom of this caliber. This
is a restomod that has speed, style, and comfort in one custom
package. So if you like the best of everything, don't miss this
hardtop. Call today!!!
